Here, some of them explain why they are supporting the 2022 Women in Games Global Awards…
“Dovetail Games is pleased to announce we are sponsors of this year’s Women In Games Career’s Expo. Events such as this are key to supporting more women into the gaming industry and we are keen to also drive this talent further into our own business. For us, sharing about the opportunities we have at Dovetail to make exciting simulation games is a pleasure and we hope that our part in this event plays an even bigger role in inspiring and driving talented women into our sector.”

“The Women in Games Global Awards is an incredibly important event which showcases the brilliant women working in games, esports and education who are helping to bring about change when it comes to gender diversity and inclusion. The ambition and mission of Women in Games aligns with our own here at Testronic – to encourage more women and girls to consider a career in games, and to support them throughout their journey. We are honoured to be a Women in Games Corporate Ambassador to demonstrate our support of the organisation’s work, and to underline our own commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion. The work that all Women in Games Corporate Ambassadors do to help bring about change across the industry is vital. Collectively, we can make a difference. Therefore, we are delighted to be presenting the Women in Games Award for Outstanding Corporate Ambassador.”
